Problem1:The Rockwell hardness of a metal specimen is determined by impressing the surface of the specimen with a hardened point, and then measuring the depth of penetration. The hardness of a certain alloy is normally distributed with a mean of 70 units and standard deviation of 3 units.

a)If a specimen is acceptable only if its hardness is between 66 and 74 units, what is the probability that a randomly chosen specimen is acceptable?

b)If the acceptable range is 70 ± c, for what value of c would 95% of all specimens be acceptable?

Problem2:

(b) If number 6 appears exactly 200 times, estimate the probability that number 5 will appear less than 150 times.
